On Monday, April 15th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Werth Institute Idea Lab, the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation will hold its first ever Get Seeded event in collaboration with the Werth Institute and other UConn sponsors. Focused on helping students receive small amounts of funding to help move their entrepreneurial ideas forward, the Get Seeded initiative attempts to cultivate student ideas enough to be able to achieve even greater funding through programs such as the IDEA Grant and Innovation Quest.
At the Get Seeded event, selected teams will pitch their ideas for potential funding (up to $1000). Teams that do not get selected will be able to receive feedback from a panel of peer judges on how to make their applications better for future attempts.
If you are interested in pitching during the Get Seeded event on April 15th, please submit an application here. Please note that the application deadline is April 10th and that applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
